RETURNED AND SERVICES LEAGUE
Founded in 1947 but reaching back to 1922
Highgate RSL Sub-Branch was founded in 1947 but includes the West Perth RSL Sub-Branch, founded in 1922 and later renamed the Public Service / Press RSL Sub-Branch, that was amalgamated with Highgate in 1976. Highgate RSL Sub-Branch provides services to its Members and the greater ex-service veteran community.
These services include fostering camaraderie through Meetings over Luncheon at the Western Australian Club, 12 St Georges Terrace, Perth, usually on the third Monday of the month and mostly including an invited speaker. Details for our Next Luncheon show information about that speaker and topic. Attendance at any Meeting and Luncheon is open to all, providing bookings and payments are made in advance, and noting that a dress code applies.
Highgate RSL Sub-Branch also provides Pensions and Veterans’ Affairs Advice and Representation, and Hospitals Visits and General Welfare services. Further information on these matters may be obtained from Specialist Members of the Highgate Committee. Alternatively information may be sought directly from the RSL Western Australian State Branch.
Highgate RSL Sub-Branch is associated with the provision of the Deputy Warden and Sub-Wardens for the WA State War Memorial, and with the Honour Avenues Group, a task that came with the amalgamation in 1976. The Sub-Branch also produces a Monthly Newsletter and its Members are available to represent at commemorative events or on other occasions on request.
Highgate RSL Sub-Branch welcomes prospective Members and those interested are invited to contact the Membership Officer. Highgate RSL Sub-Branch Membership Criteria are those of the RSL WA State Branch.
